    Isn't that fun Elijah!

    I have a friend who is using his DVD Profiler with his Media Center PC such that he is storing his DVDs on hard drives and saving the original discs and cases in storage to save space. I would love to be able to do that as well, but the size of my collection and the limits of today's PC's wont make it worth the effort.

    As to your question about unique ways of using databases, DVD Profiler does allow you to make customized reports which include coffee-table style books, binder pages, etc. You can also export your database in various formats, including Excel's spreadsheet form.

    I've got too many films to add to Profiler Nils with or without a barcode scanner, and many of them are on vhs, though they're dwindling fast as I replace them with dvds. But some, like Son of Kong and Mighty Joe Young, aren't even on dvd yet. I remember paying £42 for those two films recorded on one 4 hour tape back in the early 80's, £42! A lot of dosh for a couple of old movies back then, but I had to have 'em.[​IMG]

    Okay peeking at my movie database, I find I now have a total of 3107 films on my shelves. But that figure includes doubles and triples, take them out and I have 2688 different films dating from 1916 to 2005.
    I don't consider feature length documentaries as movies, they're in a seperate database.
    Here's a breakdown of my films by decades and genre.
    1910's - 001
    1920's - 004
    1930's - 127
    1940's - 175
    1950's - 245
    1960's - 275
    1970's - 296
    1980's - 545
    1990's - 644
    2000's - 376
    Science Fiction - 411
    Horror - 414
    Fantasy - 162
    War - 83
    Western - 120
    Historical - 138
    Musical - 77
    Animation - 170
    Comedy - 294
    HK & Japan Cinema - 188
    Thriller / Drama - 631
    Whoa! I didn't realise I had so many horror films.
    Science fiction is my favorite genre btw.

    Great...

    I mention that my signature link is updated and everyone goes on a binge about online DVD databases...

    No wonder why I've been lurking lately.

    Something like that...but not in Testy!

    The most important rules in Testy Area 51 are:

    (1) Never make a post with a hansom looking (serial) number unless your name is Steve Christou.

    (2) In Testy your post count per page must be set to 30, or else we won't understand you.

    Hey wait a minute!
    I thought the first two rules of Testy Area 51 were:
    1) You do not talk about Testy Area 51
    2) You DO NOT talk about Testy Area 51!

    BTW: Plushy Bunny for the first one to correctly list all the official rules of Fight Club.

    Nils,

    Watch this difference: "in Testy Area 51" and "of Testy Area 51".

    See?
